Innovation in Motion – RS sponsors WITT Energy

WITT Energy* are an exciting UK-based start-up, who have created the WITT System that captures energy from six degrees of motion.

Contained within a sealed unit, a WITT uses two pendulums connected to a flywheel to generate electricity. Movement causes the pendulums to swing, and they are attached to a shaft that then turns a flywheel in one direction. The flywheel is connected to a generator, which produces electricity. The unit harvests chaotic motion, turning it into usable power. In a world where renewable energy sources are of increasing importance, the WITT System is an exciting invention!

WITT Energy have been friends of DesignSpark for some time, featuring in a previous interview with Professor Lucy Rogers. In 2022 RS reconnected with WITT to offer help to the team to further develop the WITT System. To find out more about WITT Energy and the team behind the innovative technology, check out this video:
